February 3, 2021 Family-Centered Services – Early Head Start Model Are you interested in exploring the processes of family-centered service models? Join Trying Together on Wednesday, February 17 for our free virtual course, “Connections and Conversations: Family-Centered Services – Early Head Start Model.” PQAS credit available. About Connections and Conversations Virtual Check-Ins are interactive sessions that highlight topics of interest to the field of early childhood education. Participants will engage in virtual discussions via Zoom with child development experts while interacting with early learning practitioners to share questions, experiences, and expertise about the highlighted topic. This session will define and explore the processes of family-centered service models as well as introduce some basic knowledge and concepts that tie into the Early Head Start Model. Participants will receive an overview of family-centered practices and how they benefit both the child and the family. Participants should leave with basic knowledge of family-centered models, specifically those used within the Early Head Start (birth to three years old) as well as learn more about the benefits of being a part of an Early Head Start program as a professional and as a caregiver.

Session Rules and Guidelines These virtual discussions are designed to provide educators the opportunity to grow professionally and share knowledge on early childhood topics. During the meeting, participants should follow the guidelines below to ensure a successful virtual meeting for all participants. Please allow all participants a chance to speak. Listen respectfully and actively. Commit to learning about each other, not to debating the topic. Embrace differences of opinion as healthy and support each person’s authentic self-expression. Participants will be muted for the beginning portion of the session. Participants may use the “Raise Hand” feature in Zoom to request an opportunity to comment or ask a question. Individuals will be temporarily unmuted by the moderator. Participants may type a comment or question in the Chat or may send comments or questions directly to the moderator for them to share.
